Happy Clients

  • This is the third time that I’ve availed myself of Alex’s services to purchase a home in San Francisco. Needless to say, I’m a repeat client —— and I will continue to be one so long as Alex continues to plug away in the same tireless and dedicated fashion done for me in the past - especially as I’ve watched him grow and refine his service over the past decade. The usual banal litany of real estate professional superlatives apply. He’s available day or night to take questions / concerns. He’s got his pulse on homes that are off-market and not listed on the MLS so that you can maximize your search breadth. He’s tireless in his pursuit of seller’s agents to ensure you’re “in the game” (SF being a high demand / low supply market) even if your offer on a piece of property isn’t the highest or have the best terms. However, the one quality that I really value in Alex is his incredibly calm and laid back manner that is closely coupled with his personal motto - “Always be nice.” This pays off for you and for him in spades when things get contentious. Need someone to schmooze the selling agent to clue you in on what the other offers on a piece of property are coming in at? That’s Alex. Need someone to get you in to a property on one hour’s notice to do an mini-inspection after the property is supposedly no longer open to yet more bids? That’s Alex. Need someone to help you gracefully find a way to charm the seller into signing a legal affidavit about the property — AFTER you’ve already signed the sales contract and AFTER you already were supposed to have read all the disclosures? That’s Alex. Frankly - buying a home is an emotional affair. As much as one wants to be as logical about it as possible, unless your last name is Spock, there will be some drama involved. Alex knows how to make molehills out of mountains - and he will help you get it done.

  • Responsive, timely, friendly, trustworthy - words I would use to describe Alex. As a first-time home buyer I knew very little about the process, but Alex advised me to ask the right questions to get everything that was on my list. Alex is savvy about the SF real estate market and goes the extra mile for his clients. My decision to buy and use Alex in the process were the two of the best decisions I've made while living in SF.

  • Alex helped me sell my investment property and it couldn't have gone smoother. After my tenants moved out I handed him the keys and in 3 weeks my place was painted, staged, listed then sold. I didn't even step foot into my property during the process as I had the utmost confidence and trust in Alex. I've known Alex for over 5 years and know that he is well tuned into the city, he is tactful, efficient, responsive and very easy to work with. I am truly grateful and feel blessed to have had him sell my property. I highly recommend him as a real estate broker to anyone looking for property or wanting to buy in San Francisco. 10 Golden Stars!!!

  • Alex is an outstanding agent. We worked together for 2.5 years in search of just the right home for me and my daughters. Over that time, Alex showed me dozens of homes and helped me put in several strong offers in a very competitive neighborhood and market. Alex provided the perfect balance in an agent -- he was responsive to my needs and respectful of my decisions as a buyer and aggressive in representing me to the sellers agent, always adeptly managing to get my offers to rise to the top. This home buying journey was well played and well worth the wait. This week I received the keys to my forever home. I couldn't be happier. Thank you Alex!

  • Alex is a first class act all the way. He was able to navigate a very complicated sale and keep the deal alive on my terms even when it looked like the wheels would fall off. He even was able to get funds released inside of escrow enabling me to purchase a new home before my listing closed! I'm a client for life. -2169 Folsom M202
